Thursday, September 21, 2017
5:00-7:00pm
Warren Room (Boalt 295) | UC Berkeley School of Law

 

Join UC Berkeley and UCLA Law for an evening event on energy efficiency retrofit finance at UC Berkeley Law on Thursday, September 21st.

As SB 350 (De Leon, 2015) requires California to double the energy efficiency of existing buildings by 2030, private sector investment will be critical to financing these energy retrofits. What metering technologies and new policies will be needed to unlock large-scale financing? Following up on our 2016  report, Powering the Savings, speakers will focus on recent innovations, new policies, and promising success stories on metered energy efficiency that the state can build on to achieve these ambitious and necessary climate and energy goals.
